"Twentieth Century Fox Film has temporarily halted production on Bohemian Rhapsody due to the unexpected unavailability of Bryan Singer", the studio said in a statement to THR on Friday.

The director has yet to comment and has been absent from the set since Thanksgiving, despite being due back in London five days ago. At one point, Tom Hollander, who plays Queen manager Jim Beach, walked out altogether due to Singer's behavior, only to return at a later date...after some convincing.

"Bryan Singer is no longer the director of Bohemian Rhapsody", a studio spokesperson said in a statement.

Penn State returns to Fiesta Bowl to play Washington
The Nittany Lions' second straight 10-win regular season earned them a second straight berth in a prestigious New Year's Six game. Penn State was No. 9 in the final College Football Playoff rankings and Washington was No. 11.

The Mr. Robot star, 36, reportedly complained to Twentieth Century Fox about Singer's "unreliability and unprofessionalism".

The growing tension led to a confrontation between Singer and Malek, which, while it did not become physical, did involve Singer throwing an object.

THR reported that Singer was absent during production on several occasions.

This is not first time that Singer has disappeared during a production. When Sigel had to step in again, the studio made a decision to terminate Singer (who has a pay-or-play contract) and shut production down until they sorted the mess left by their wayward director. A representative from the Directors Guild of America also arrived on set to monitor the situation. However, the two supposedly settled their differences and it was expected production would resume. The new filmmaker will complete the final two weeks of principal photography.

Another insider tells the Hollywood Reporter that Singer claims to be suffering PTSD after the tense on-set atmosphere.

No word yet on whether the chaos behind the scenes will have any affect on the release of Bohemian Rhapsody, which is now set to premiere on December 25, 2018.
